Dwayne Johnson Reveals First Official Look at ‘Black Adam’

Dwayne Johnson hit social media this weekend with the first photo of his character from the upcoming Black Adam film. The image of the title character is a moody black & white that shows more of a silhouette but you can make out the rags that he’s wearing and can see a bit of the actors face.

With the post the actor wrote: “If you know the comic book mythology, then you know where his pain comes from. His rage. His wife and children killed. His people brutally enslaved. He is not a superhero, but rather a champion. Champion of the poor and beaten down. Champion of the people. And he is the most unstoppable force in the DC UNIVERSE.”


He then gave an update on filming: “Production is coming along GREAT and I’m very pleased with the movie we’re making. Black Adam’s mythology, ethics and actions no doubt will create a new paradigm in the world of superheroes, villains & antiheroes. The power will shift. The line will blur. From a slave to a God.”


Hmmm… are they changing the mythology of Black Adam now?


The film is slated for July 29, 2022 and will be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra. The film also stars Sarah Shahi as Isis, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, Pierce Brosnan as Dr. Fate, Aldis Hodge as Hawkman and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.
